Superintendent Search

Superintendent Search

The Board of Education is continuing the process of hiring a new Superintendent as Dr. James Montesano retires from a significant and meaningful tenure in the Nyack School Community. 

To the Nyack-Valley Cottage Community:

One of the most helpful tools in our search for the best candidate is input from the community. What qualities do you find important in a superintendent? What challenges do you believe face our district?  

To learn the answers to some of these questions, the District's Board of Education conducted a survey in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole. As a result, the input is being used to build the profile of the ideal superintendent for Nyack Public Schools and to ensure the effective search and hiring of a new superintendent. The Superintendent Search Specifications Report was presented to the BOE on November 18th, 2020 and is posted to this site for the public.

As your elected trustees, we are committed to keeping the  school community informed and involved on next steps. We encourage all parents, teachers, students, and community members to remain invested in this critical choice for the future of our beloved school community.

With many thanks in advance for your participation,

- Michael Mark, BOE President, on behalf of the Nyack Board of Education
